20:11:52 <liknus> #topic Announcements
20:12:35 <liknus> i would like to state that cmpahar and I had a great event in Athens Digital Week with many contributors joining Fedora Project
20:12:52 <liknus> (mainly on translations)
20:13:12 <cmpahar> and a lot of Fedora enthusiasts!
20:13:18 <cmpahar> people loved fedora!
20:13:21 <loupgaroublond> how many people did you have?
20:13:41 <liknus> Aprox 3000 people came by
20:13:58 <liknus> 50 people watching Fedora sessions-workshops
20:14:15 <liknus> 4-5 booth personnel
20:14:19 <loupgaroublond> any stats on the number of new signups?
20:14:35 <liknus> 3 new translators
20:14:50 <liknus> 1 new on Fedora Websites
20:14:56 <liknus> 1 possible Ambassador
20:15:39 <liknus> We were the only distro with constant presence there and that did count
20:15:52 <liknus> Any other announcement?
20:16:15 <loupgaroublond> release party stuff?

20:36:16 <liknus> Ok moving one to swag-inventory
20:36:30 <liknus> #topic Swag-Inventory
20:37:03 <liknus> kital wanted to remind us that the Inventory page for EMEA region is up and running
20:37:08 <liknus> #link https://fedorahosted.org/emea-swag-tracking/wiki/Inventory
20:37:55 <liknus> So please if you have any inventory or swag related to Fedora please drop by this link and update the page accordingly :)
20:39:15 <liknus> We printed 1000 stickers of fedora logo (full logo with letters) for the Athens Digital Week so we have a big leftover :)
20:40:04 <liknus> I guess I will supply some of you during our next European Major meeting (quite possibly the FOSDEM)
20:40:22 <liknus> Anyone any requests/questions on swag-inventory?
20:40:30 * liknus shall wait 1 minute
20:40:52 <wonderer> sounds good, because I had to few of those swag :-/
20:41:26 <biertie> ok, I added something for the inventory
20:41:35 <liknus> nice biertie :)
20:41:38 <biertie> wasn't there a project to get all this material at one place?
20:41:43 <biertie> loupgaroublond:
20:42:39 <liknus> biertie: we decided at FAD EMEA to build up an iinventory and in case someone needs sth we will ship it via a shipping account provided by RedHat
20:42:44 <cmpahar> i dont think that is good to gather all the material in one place
20:42:54 <cmpahar> i doesn't worth
20:43:06 <cmpahar> *it
20:43:12 <biertie> mhm, dnno :)
20:43:31 <biertie> but ok, if you need a router/switch/wap, you can get it now, an it runs linux ^__^
20:43:46 <cmpahar> think that you have to pay the shipment for gathering and then for sending them back to some cities
20:44:10 <liknus> biertie: thats cool ! but in major events we are porhibited to run our own APs :(
20:44:35 <biertie> liknus: well, fedora has somethimes boots in smaller events too
20:44:45 <biertie> like, I have always a stand on the open day of my school
20:45:12 <liknus> biertie: nice and running an AP on linux sounds great :)
20:45:31 <liknus> OK anything else on swag?
20:46:22 <liknus> Right, lets move to our open floor then
20:46:28 <liknus> #topic Open Floor
20:46:52 <cmpahar> Can i say something please?
20:47:02 <liknus> cmpahar: go ahead!
20:47:21 <liknus> (dont make it formal plz :P )
20:48:12 <cmpahar> well, in athens digital week we were giving people a localized flyer presenting is fedora and all its goodies. In contact details we were writing about our mailing list and we were saying to them to go and sign up
20:48:26 <cmpahar> many of them didn't know what is a mailing list..
20:48:50 <cmpahar> maybe we could create a localized page at the wiki to explain what is a mailing list
20:49:01 <cmpahar> and some instructions for them
20:49:35 <liknus> cmpahar: in case this happens, all Join pages shall be updated with a link to that page
20:50:03 <cmpahar> the mailing url is also to big to remember and to write.. so we can provide them a wiki page with a simple and short url and all the info they want
20:50:12 <cmpahar> any suggestions?
20:50:14 <liknus> In order to be localised I guess we should contact the Doc team to make a page and then pass it to Transifex
20:50:18 <cmpahar> liknus, off course
20:50:44 <liknus> shall you contact the Doc team for that?
20:51:46 <cmpahar> of course
20:51:52 <liknus> #action cmpahar contact Doc team on the creation of mailing-list explanatory page and passing it to transifex
20:52:23 <bochecha> isn't there already a /Communicate page explaining what a ML is ?
20:52:41 <cmpahar> we want it localized!
20:52:55 <liknus> bochecha: didnt know about it :) link plz?
20:53:33 <bochecha> https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Communicate#Mailing_Lists
20:54:35 <liknus> ok cmpahar you have something to start off.. link this to Doc people and ask their opinion on l10n on that
20:54:43 <cmpahar> ok
20:55:28 <liknus> thanks bochecha
20:55:37 <liknus> Anything else anyone?
20:56:17 * liknus shall wait 5 minutes before calling it off
20:56:42 <cmpahar> i forgot to mention an event!
20:56:42 <cmpahar> :(
